1.SLUG- How High
2.PERPLEX VS SHIFT- Retrobution
3.PITCH HIKERS Give The Order
4.ABOMINATION VS SLUG-Bleed
5.SHIFT Dead Meat
6.PAINKILLER VS BLISS- Ragga Time
7.MULTISTATE- Spoil
8.MANIFOLD- Faces
9.BRETHREN- More Power

Here it goes with my new rating system!


1)
Slow-Fast: 6.5
Light-Heavy: 6.5
Smooth-Rough: 3.5
Arid-Wet: 6
Dark-Light: 4
Cold-Warm: 7
blurry – crisp: 7
clean –dirty: 3
Element: Fire
Quality: 8, Solid

2)
Slow-Fast: 6.5
Light-Heavy: 7
Smooth-Rough: 3
Arid-Wet: 5.5
Dark-Light: 4
Cold-Warm: 7.5
blurry – crisp: 6
clean –dirty: 3
Element: Air/water
Quality: 7.5, very nice, especially towards the end! I like the 303-style acid in here.

3)
Slow-Fast: 7
Light-Heavy: 5
Smooth-Rough: 2
Arid-Wet: 4
Dark-Light: 7
Cold-Warm: 3 (with some warm to hot parts in the middle).
blurry – crisp: 3
clean –dirty: 4
Element: Air
Quality: 8.5

4)
Slow-Fast: 7
Light-Heavy: 7
Smooth-Rough: 3
Arid-Wet: 5.5
Dark-Light: 3
Cold-Warm: 7
blurry – crisp: 6
clean –dirty: 6
Element: Fire!
Quality: 9 Wicked! The main synth melody is so damn catchy, I forgive its simplicity and repetition.

5)Slow-Fast:
Light-Heavy:
Smooth-Rough: 3
Arid-Wet: 3
Dark-Light: 6.5
Cold-Warm: 9
blurry – crisp:
clean –dirty: 6, depending which part of the track
Element: Air/Fire
Quality: 8.5
Booty shakin athem, some will probably call it cheesy, but I think it’s a really fun track. We’ll see how it ages.

6)Slow-Fast:
Light-Heavy:7
Smooth-Rough 4
Arid-Wet: 3
Dark-Light:6
Cold-Warm:7
blurry – crisp: 5
clean –dirty: 6
Element: Earth/Fire
Quality: 5.5, I don’t see much in this track.

7)
Slow-Fast: 7
Light-Heavy: 7
Smooth-Rough: 2.5
Arid-Wet: 6
Dark-Light: 5
Cold-Warm: 8
blurry – crisp: 3.5
clean –dirty: 6
Element: Air
Quality: 5. Why isn’t this labeled as a remix? It has the exact same synth patterns as some stuff off timecode-the turning. Nice track, but I cant respect it when its labeled as its own thing and it uses material so directly from other tracks. I would give it an 8.5 if it somehow credited the borrowing in the track. The end of the track is fucking HOT though.

8)
Slow-Fast: 8
Light-Heavy: 7
Smooth-Rough: 4
Arid-Wet: 6
Dark-Light: 4
Cold-Warm: 9, hot!
blurry – crisp: 5
clean –dirty: 6
Element: Earth
Quality: 9, Like the melody that comes in around 00:40 sec. This track is even more of a booty shaker than track 5.

9)
Slow-Fast: 7
Light-Heavy: 6.5
Smooth-Rough: 3
Arid-Wet: 7
Dark-Light: 4
Cold-Warm: 6
blurry – crisp: 6
clean –dirty: 7
Element: Earth
Quality: 6.5, The first couple seconds suck!! Then it gets better, but it still isn’t my favorite. I like the opera/ghost sounds.



Overall: This is a very good album, I like it a lot, although it won’t take the place of MMD’s v/a-Twilight Children (which is still always near the top of my cd stack). This one isn’t anything groundbreaking, but it does what it does quite well. It probably wont go down in the annals of trance as a classic, but if you like the style of Abomination and the newer Shift, you should definitely pick this one up.

I give this one an overall 7.7/10, subject to revision depending on how well it ages.

i think its an awful way of reviewing a cd. no one is going to bother reading such ratings and try and connect them with the "elements" or whatever the fk you want to call them.
Cool CD tho. Perplex Shift, Abomination Slug and Painkiller Bliss were the bombs

this cd is pretty kick ass.
the pitch hikers track just blows me away. the atmosphere and build up are too much for me. great track.
shift - dead meat, is another great track here. its shift at his best. perhaps not as good as ice age or cerebral cortex rmx, this track is still a monster.
slug - how high, really nice track.
also liked the multistate and manifold track. other tracks are prety cool too. good compilation, id definately give it a 8 on 10.

@Psychosmo...

On track 7(Multistate-spoil): Same synth patterns as on Timecode "The turning"?

2 of the lead sounds comes from an old track of ours (Lost & Found vs Xatrik - Elastik ice, Twilight children-MMD recs). Its our own leads man..

for me this kind of review sucks.
sorry to say but whats that all about?
its hard to get some valuable informations from "normally written" reviews without knowing the artist
but with that one i dont have a clue...
and cmon, just a column of words and numbers is an so inelegant way to describe music.

"the new shift track is killa - its cold-warm ratio=9"
"killa!"

          - last possible solution
- trick music
- ambivalent records

Yeah that new ratingsystem sucks ass. Sorry Psycosmo... Better go back to old style reviewing, with good old fashioned words, which is way better for describing music. Anyway, a pretty good cd. Nothing really storming or anything, but worth buying with some solid tracks especially the Shift track.           "Subconscious unravels at the point of death, and all time it has known erupts into a moment. As death extinguishes us, so we become it."

Very nice compilation indeed. Some standout tracks in there -Abomination vs Slug, Shift, Pitch Hikers and Slug tunes are all very good.

OK fine so it was from the MMD. Anyway I didnt notice that Multistate was the same thing as Lost and Found.

In any case, you get low marks for creativity for recycling your leads.
Deal with it!!!


PS OK I guess the rating system is gonna have to go. I figured "who actually reads all those words in one of those long-ass reviews?"
I discussed the rating system before trying it out here

what the fuck is the review all about LMAO.

Killer CD.

Shift, abomination, painkiller, bliss are monsters here.
Madness south african style as death posture says music laced with sonic energy.

hehe you guys heard the manifold track pretty funky isnt it ?
